what is your meaning of an open relationship ?
Is it a good thing or a bad thing?
Your in a relationship, but you can still see and date other people. Im against open relationship, just break up and find someone else that can be in a steady relationship.
It can be good as well as Bad, it depends on the individuals and their mind set as well as intentions. To me an open relationship is being able to be in a relationship with someone that you unconditionally love, respect, as well as care. But the both of you aren't "totally committed", (for whatever reason) or haven't gotten to the place that the two of you are completely connected to be truly committed! Not a verbal commitment, because people can say anything and it can change within the next hour. But physically and spiritually committed/connected. Knowing that we both are in the know in regards to everything that each other does due to honesty and respect. btw it doesn't mean that you want to sleep around or you're desperate to have your cake and eat it to. You may have interest elsewhere, but you are able to share that with that person you are connected to without feeling insecure or hurting their feelings by being sneaky!

To me an 'open relationship' is the biggest ever invited noun allowing people NOT to commit to a one-to-one relationship deliberately, and increase the chance of getting AIDS.
An open relationship is a relationship in which the participants are free to have emotional and physical relationships with other partners, often within mutually agreed limits. If a couple in a relationship like this is married, it can be called an open marriage.
Open relationship allows them to have more freedom within their lives tend to believe that participating in additional intimate relationships, with or without emotional attachment, makes them better partners to the people they are committed to.
Negative aspect is that, you open yourself up to feelings of insecurity, jealousy, and other negative emotional feelings. How would it feel to love someone, and run the risk of your partner becoming more attached to a one night stand or occasional fling, than he or she is attached to you? This could open up a whole in emotional turmoil.
Every healthy relationship involves plenty of trust, as well as emotional maturity. In any case, be glad you've got the opportunity to discuss the issue openly, and you're sure to make a decision that is best for all involved.
An open relationship is when two people decide that they want to be together but agree to also either include others intimately or have intimacy with others on their own.
While I don't knock those who make this their preference it is definitely not mine because I feel "what's the point in having a relationship in the first place if you are going to change the meaning of what a commitment stands for?"
In My opinion if someone wants to have an open relationship they might as well not commit at all just remain friends with benefits.
For me an open relationship is no relationship but not everyone feels that way. That being said, I'd have to say that it depends on how the couple defines their relationship in the beginning. Anything is possible with work!?*
In general, men seem to like it, women, not so much Back when I was a member of http://answers.yahoo.com there were TONS of questions on this and men seemed to be more positive towards it.
